You will absolutely love this mixtape by DJ Judgement out of Montreal Canada. The music on this is out of this world. A mixture of Trinidad and Tobago and Dominica, sprinkled with other Caribbean artists, just spiced up the musical pot. 
 
Are you ready for the ultimate carnival experience? If you are, then you need to check out the latest mixtape from DJ Judgement, Road 2 Carnival 2024. This mixtape features the hottest tracks from Dominica and Trinidad, two islands that are known for their vibrant and diverse musical cultures.
 
Dominica is the home of bouyon, a fusion of soca, cadence-lypso, and other genres that create a fast-paced and energetic sound. Bouyon has been popularized by bands like WCK, Triple Kay, and Asa Bantan, as well as solo artists like Reo, Colton T, and Signal Band. Some of the bouyon songs you will hear on this mixtape are:

  • Calendar Riddim by Signal Band ft. Shelly & DJ Drixx
Trinidad is the birthplace of calypso, steelpan, and soca, genres that have influenced music all over the world. Soca is the dominant genre of carnival music in Trinidad, with its catchy melodies, pulsating rhythms, and infectious lyrics. Soca has evolved over the years, incorporating elements from other genres like dancehall, reggae, and EDM. Some of the soca songs you will hear on this mixtape are:
  • Round and Rosie by Nailah Blackman
  • Carnival Contract by Bunji Garlin
  • The Greatest Carnival by Mical Teja
  • Miss Bitch by Fayann Lyons

Give love, feel love, be love... Shurwayne is on a mission to spread positivity, and pure unadulterated love.  Today we debut for fans of this blog and anyone who loves Caribbean music an after-carnival music release from Shurwayne Winchester titled, "Pasyon".
 
Shurwayne Winchester, Soca music's Micael Jackson, has gifted us with a vibrant musical creation that seamlessly blends the infectious beats of Soca with the rhythmic allure of Kompa. Released after Trinidad's Carnival 2024, “Pasyon” is a single that transports listeners to sun-kissed beaches, lively dance floors, and tropical celebrations. It is a positive message of love and passion delivered with sensual musical vibes. 
 
In “Pasyon,” Shurwayne Winchester infuses the vibe of Trinidad and Tobago and Soca music with an infusion of Haitian Kompa and his signature flair, creating an irresistible groove that invites everyone to join the party. Haitian Kompa (Konpa) music has always been a sensual and soulful sound. The accordion, guitar, and percussion intertwine, creating a danceable yet emotive experience. Shurwayne masterfully weaves Kompa elements into “Pasyon,” adding depth and intrigue.
 
As the song unfolds, you’ll feel the warmth of the Caribbean sun, taste the salt in the air, and sway to the intoxicating fusion of Soca and Kompa. Shurwayne’s vocals soar, inviting us to lose ourselves in the rhythm, celebrating life, love, and passion.
 
Whether you’re dancing barefoot on sandy shores or grooving in a dimly lit club, “Pasyon” is the soundtrack to those moments when music transcends boundaries. So, as you listen to this song on Sokah2Soca or on Island Vybe radio, we invite you to turn up the volume, let the beats envelop you, and let “Pasyon” ignite your spirit.

Island Vybe radio blog readers and listeners of Philadelphia's premier Caribbean radio station, we present, once again, "Inventor" by Olatunji Yearwood. Why are we back with this song after "the Mecca's" Carnival is over? Good question, and here is the answer, this song is so damn sweet, like a backyard Caribbean sugar cane. We believe that if this song had the time (a longer carnival season) and the right promotion, it could have done what DNA succeeded in doing. 
 
Yes, we said it, and why haven't you been lighting a fire with the management of Island Vybe radio for more daily Soca music? Why not start and ask to hear this song on air? Can you do that? 
 
We want more Soca; we want more Soca on Island Vybe Radio daily! Just listen to this song and tell me if your radio DJs are doing justice to Soca music. We applaud their love for dancehall and reggae, but come on fellas, we want more Soca! Enough said...
